APIE seeks ambassador for education partnerships
Do you have a passion for education and outstanding networking skills? Can you inspire children and adults alike? Do you have a few spare hours a week to devote to fostering and nurturing relationships with a number of UK schools? If so, you could be our next UK Schools Ambassador.
APIE is recruiting a volunteer UK Schools Ambassador to take forward our fundraising and partnership work with UK schools. To learn more about the role and read about the experience of our outgoing Schools Ambassador, please visit our Jobs and volunteering page.
APIE receives UK aid to roll out teacher training across Rwanda
UK aid from the British people will enable APIE to expand access to quality teacher training in pre-primary education through a Small Charities Challenge Fund grant.
The second phase of our innovative EQUIP training programme will roll out e-learning modules to 16 Teacher Training Colleges and 17 model schools in Rwanda, equipping both trainees and practicing teachers with the knowledge, skills and practical ideas to provide high quality education for nursery children. Over the course of the project we will train 1600 third year trainee teachers and 51 pre-primary teachers as well as tutors, principals and education inspectors. Over 1500 nursery children will benefit from the programme in another step towards meeting Sustainable Development Goal 4 to ensure quality education for all.
APIE response to COVID-19
APIE has staff, trustees and volunteers in the UK, Rwanda, the US and further afield, and our priority is to keep everyone as safe as possible. With our usual creativity and determination everyone who works for APIE is continuing to work towards our key priorities with incredible energy and focus, despite the very challenging circumstances we all find ourselves in. Like many charities across the globe, we are facing a funding crisis at a time when need is at its greatest. We have launched our Coronavirus Appeal with a target to raise £24,000 to enable us to continue to support the delivery of quality education to children at Umubano Academy and beyond. Please donate what you can.
